Your first Tobacco Heater – What do you need to know?

Are you an adult consumer of tobacco products and want to try out tobacco heaters? Or have you just ordered a glo™ tobacco heater and want to learn how to use your device properly?

This article aims to explain exactly what glo™ is and give you tips on how to use it to improve your glo™ experience.

What are tobacco heaters?

Tobacco heaters are relatively new, and you may not yet have had a chance to familiarise yourself with their functionality and how they can be used. With glo™, tobacco is only heated, so there is no combustion process unlike traditional cigarettes.

To find out more about tobacco heaters and how they work, you can read our dedicated article.

How to use your glo™ for the first time?

If you've never used tobacco heaters before, you may have questions about how to use them properly. But don't worry! Using glo™ tobacco heaters is not complicated.

To use your new glo™ device for the first time, you of course need your glo™ tobacco heater but also the neo™ tobacco sticks. Find the different flavours available for your neo™ tobacco sticks and choose the one or ones you like best.

Here are the instructions and our tips for using your glo™ device:

  • Open the flap of your glo™ device.
  • Insert the neo™ tobacco stick into the opening to the coloured line.
  • Choose your preferred heating level. To find out more between the two heating levels, here's our article.
  • The double vibration indicates that the device is heating up.
  • After 20 to 30 seconds, the device vibrates again and is ready to use.
  • You can start your session and enjoy your tobacco stick.
  • 10 seconds before the end of the session, your glo™ device will vibrate again and switch off.
  • Remove the tobacco stick and close the flap of your glo™ device to protect the heating duct.

Impressions when using the glo™ device for the first time

If you've smoked traditional cigarettes up until now and you're just starting your first sessions with a tobacco heater, you need to prepare yourself for sensations that are slightly different from those of traditional cigarettes. The taste of heated tobacco is slightly different from that of burnt tobacco.

You'll need a few sessions to get used to these new flavours and to using your device. Don't hesitate to test the two heating modes and different tobacco sticks to find the perfect combination.

Maintenance tips for the glo™ tobacco heater

When you buy your first tobacco heater, not only do you need to learn how to use it, but you also need to know how to maintain it to extend its life and also keep it working optimally.

The two main aspects related to the maintenance of glo™ tobacco heating devices are, like most electronic devices, charging and cleaning. Charging the glo™ device is like that of a mobile phone or any other electronic device. The batteries in glo™ devices require regular charging, without waiting until they are completely discharged. It is also advisable to wait for the glo™ device to cool down (approximately 5 minutes after the end of the session) before charging it.

It is important to clean your device regularly, every 20 sessions. You can find all the information on cleaning your glo™ device in our dedicated article.

Ready to use your glo™ tobacco heater?

Now you're ready to use your glo™ tobacco heater with neo™ tobacco sticks! If you haven't already ordered your device, choose it from the various glo™ tobacco heaters.
